Two babies in one week. Wow, a medical miracle, if not twins!

They aren't showing the replay but I've seen 3 portland fouls that looked like soft fouls. One was Collins just standing with his arms up

Vomit inducing so far. We look terrible. Still plenty of time.

Collins "fouls" don't really look like fouls to me.

Well Celtics definitely playing better than Blazers so far. Nurkic has been good though.

CJ, Dame and Melo are a combined 5-21. Ouch

So our guards can't shoot now? ...and of course we still can't cover the 3pt line... Wenyen should get some burn in the 2nd half...at least he can guard in space. Won't happen but thats what I would do.

I doubt if the uncontested threes are not basically the same, out of each teams attempts (19 v18). They are just doing much better when contested. What is of more concern for me is Kanter's offensive rebounds. Keep a body on him somehow.

I would switch out Trent Jr and Carmelo in the starting lineup and hope CJ and Dame get hot

Perimeter defense is getting exposed. Exposed? I don't know if I can say that since every single person watching the game knows it. Cs riding Lillard and limiting his options and it's working. Would help if Blazers could actually hit an open shot or two...

Trent had a hell of a game against Memphis I wouldn't send him to the bench for one rough game.

Only good take away so far is Trent cements his status as a true 3andD plus player more every game.

I meant putting Trent in at SF ahead of Melo.

74th point? Was that bad perimeter defense or just good shooting fortune for Celts?
